Acorn Enterprises, the vocational training arm of the Jersey Employment Trust, has won the national accolade of Reuse Organisation of the Year at the Reuse Network’s 2018 conference. The Reuse Network supports over 200 reuse charities across the British Isles, working with them to help alleviate poverty, reduce waste and tackle climate change. Acorn Enterprises was shortlisted for the award with five other reuse charities. A public online vote crowned Acorn Enterprises as the winner. Since winning the State’s Reuse contract in 2016, Acorn Enterprises has worked with the Department of Infrastructure and other charities to turn environmental objectives into work and training opportunities. All the proceeds from the reuse centre are reinvested into the business to create more opportunities for clients to help them gain and maintain employment.
